About Carol Harwood and Cassie Houghton

My mum Carol, originally from London has been living in the Algarve since 2000 and renovated Casa Santa Maria, an old farmhouse into a beautiful, stylish villa over several years. Having visited Carvoeiro since 1980 she has a great knowledge of the area and recommendations to suit all tastes.

Carol Harwood and Cassie Houghton purchased this villa in 2001

What makes this villa unique

the combination of location, village plus villa layout makes it a perfect holiday location for families of all ages.

Fantastic villa in great location and lovely owners to boot!

  • 5 of 5

Luke, Cass (7),Kitty (5) and myself, had a marvellous stay at your villa which was a real home...books, games, paintings, also comfortable furniture with plenty of cushions and throws. We all felt very relaxed when 'at home', with lots of space to spread out and follow our own pursuits.

Ted was the perfect 'meeter and greeter' and his local information and advice was very helpful.

The kitchen was very well equipped with plenty of kitchen tools although we didn't have a chance to use the barbecue as it was so easy to pop out to eat as well as visit the beach. We made much use of the outside plates and glasses etc as we spent much of our time at the swimming pool! The children, as ardent water lovers, would have been happy to spend all day, every day, in the pool.

There was always plenty of hot water for showers, baths and washing up and all the equipment, TV etc all worked perfectly.

The villa was very private, and quiet at night. We all returned very happy and rested. Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer.

Thank you for providing a such a thoughtful holiday home.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful clean villa and swimming pool, a real 'home from home'. Very well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it. Lovey quiet location but close enough to local bars & restaurants no close by supermarket though. Beach within easy walking distance. We spent a few hours with 'wildwatch' on a dolphin safari-this I would highly recommend.

Super villa à 5 minutes de la plage

  • 5 of 5

Très belle villa, spacieuse. 4 grandes chambres. Carvoeiro est un village typique avec une belle plage et des commerces avoisinants. En à peine 10 minutes, tout est accessible. Nous y étions la semaine du 15 Août et ce n'était pas bondé contrairement à Albufeira ou Faro. Le quartier est calme. Rien à dire sur la maison, beaucoup d'équipements. draps et serviettes fournis. La piscine est grande avec une vue incroyable sur la Baie. Très calme et confortable. Nous étions 2 familles avec 5 enfants et nous ne nous marchions pas dessus. Ted, qui est nous a accueilli est très sympathique. Disponible par téléphone en cas de problème. Un poolman ainsi qu'un jardinier sont passés dans la semaine. La maison était impeccable à notre arrivée et une maid est venue à notre départ. Carol a su répondre à toutes nos questions avant le départ et était très disponible également par email pour accommoder au mieux notre séjour. Je recommande les yeux fermés cette location!
